Today at 2:15pm I ran my fingers through my hair and there it was. The start of the baldness. The hair loss. The lovely locks are on their way out. Don’t ask me how I knew what the time was, or even the relevance. I just remember the time.
Anyhoo, we all know that was going to happen but what no one told me was the itchiness. The last few days I have been itching my head like a lice/nits infested child. Constant scratching. I didn’t think much of that at the time, beside it being a bit annoying but now, because it has started to fall out, it is even itchier.
This has me thinking. What happens when the forest of dreams downstairs in lady land starts falling out? How on earth am I going to be able to go around scratching that? A head is easy because you can do that discreetly by ‘running your fingers through your hair and having a scratch on the way through’. Well, I can’t actually do that now because where will I put the hand fulls of hair if I am in the supermarket?
I can’t ‘accidentally’ rub myself on the trolly because then it’ll look like I am masturbating in public and could possibly get arrested. Oh man, this is going to be a tough one.
I can hear you saying, just shave it now. Well, have you ever shaved ‘down there’? It grows back super duper itchy if you haven’t done it for a while and what if it isn’t ready to fall out yet and comes back itchy from the growth AND the hair loss. See my dillema here?
Well, tomorrow I am going to ask Dr Hands to shave my head because already, this hair loss is annoying. Not just the itchiness but the bits of hair that are on my body. It is like I am constantly walking through spider webs or that I have some out of control body tick. I absolutely hate random hair on my shoulders, arms, in my sandwich etc.
So tomorrow is the day. I’ll try not to think of ‘lady land’ and hope she doesn’t have me walking around with my hands down my pants having a good ol’ scratch.
I’ll leave you tonight with that image….

Yes, the head itching is a real pain! Beware, it is also very sensitive when you’re first bald, but it soon settles down. My”nether regions” didn’t itch when the hair fell out, that was reserved for head hair only, thank goodness!
I have been warned about the sensitivity of my head when the hair comes out and it was recommended I use baby shampoo and even baby soap for the rest of my body. I have these products ready to go. OOh I hope I don’t get the itch down there either then. Phew, there is hope! Thanks Ann xx
You will do just great 🙂 I wasn’t ready when mine started to fall out so I put it back in a French plait and it stayed like that for another maybe 5-10 days… And by then I was ready and I had a good experience when I cut it short. It had matted a bit when I slept (I wish I’d worn a scarf during the night) and it itched a bit but ultimately I was so glad that I hadn’t just lopped it off when I wasn’t ready. It’s in my blog if ur curious… Good luck, you can do this! X
I had read your blog when you cut your hair and it was awesome. I love the photos and you look so cute with your new short hair. You can pull it off beautifully. We’ll see how I go with mine but I can tell you right now, there is no way I can wait five or ten days. Mine isn’t long enough to put into a plait and already, I hate having hair constantly falling off in front of my eyes. Am thinking tonights the night 🙂
“Forest of dreams downstairs in lady land”! That is what I will refer to my good lady-wife’s as forever more! Classic!

haha I am glad you liked it. I hope your wife likes the referral as much as you do….
We’ll have to wait and see! I’ll let you know.
Oh boy! I remember my head felt itchy but I shaved it. It actually feels a lot better after doing that.
About the bottom part, I don’t recall feeling itchy at all. It usually came off in the shower so it was alright.
You will feel better when you shaved the head. I would not shave the other head though. hahaha!
It is horrible to have a constantly itchy head hey? Sam and I are going to open a bottle of bubbles tonight and farewell my hair.
Ok that is good news. I’ll let the forest of dreams depart naturally.
LOL you are a funny one!
